In the past I’ve bought a used layout, in my case it was the layout that became Bawdsey.
It is a good way of getting started in a new scale or gauge, and if anyone out there is looking for a flying start in N Gauge, there’s a good example, ‘Milton Street’ being sold by a friend at the moment. It appeared in this years February Railway Modeller if you want a good set of images and detailed information on it. The link below will take you to the sale page Milton Street
It’s one of those layouts that captures my imagination, and suits BR steam into 70’s and 80’s blue as the article images show.
So if you’re short on time, space, or want to try N Gauge, here is a real opportunity to get that quality kick start with Milton Street.
